Researchers identify 'sleep node' in the mammalian brain. Its activity appears to be necessary and sufficient to produce deep sleep.
Genetics factors could contribute to the development of language during infancy, a new study reports.
A new study adds to the developing evidence of the role genetics plays in some cases of PTSD.
Researchers discover that a genetic mutation which arose over half a million years ago could be key to humans' ability to understand and produce speech.
A new study links Jacobsen syndrome, a rare genetic disease, with autism.
Researchers report the learning and memory deficits associated with neurofibromatosis are distinct features which require different treatment approaches.
According to a new study, neurons created from iPSCs of people with schizophrenia secrete higher amounts of dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.
A new study could provide additional insights into neurodegenerative diseases which result from misfolded proteins piling up.
A new study reports researchers have discovered a new molecular target which is essential for neuroplasticity.
Researchers identify how cytoplasmic dynein-2, a molecular motor essential for human development, works.
Researchers report they have uncovered a new treatment for perinatal brain injuries.
Researchers discover the IP3R receptor can be locked into closed state by enzyme action. This could potentially play a role in the reduction of neuron signaling seen in some neurodegenerative disorders.
The stiffness of the surface on which stem cells grow can have a profound influence on the cell fate, a new study reports.
Researchers use iPSCs to create a disease in a dish model of Huntington's disease in transgenic nonhuman primates.
Researchers discover that a rare inherited neuromuscular disease is the result of a genetic mutation which interferes with the communication between nerves and muscles.
